Five young people apply to live in an isolated house together for six months whilst their every move is filmed by numerous cameras. Each has their reason for wanting to be there - fame, money, adventure. The prize - $1 million. The rules - if one person leaves, everyone loses. It becomes the ultimate morality test. When Danny's beloved grandfather dies, does his greed overcome his love? When the skittish Emma finds blood on her pillow why does she still stay behind? And what dark secret does the house harbour that leaves them feeling as though they're being watched by more than just a million pairs of eyes?Written by
Director Marc Evans was worried that if this movie flopped at the box-office (like his previous two films), it would be the end of his directing career. Luckily for him, that didn't happen. After an initial lukewarm response, the film became a surprise sleeper hit. See more »
When the sheriff enters the basement we can see he leaves the door open. When it cuts to wide shots we can see in both wide shots that the door is closed. Then it appears open again later. See more »
This movie had none of the ingredients necessary to make a successful horror/thriller, it was weak from beginning to end, and was incapable of thrilling or shocking, when you take into account this is the point of such a movie you can see what the problem is. It's a film that lacks any humour whatsoever, and doesn't compensate with enough of the dark chills that you would expect from such a storyline. The complete implausibility of the story/plot ensures that you never forget you are watching a bunch of half-baked actors plying their trade. Their attempts bringing to life to a leaden script failed, it stunk and it sunk. Whatever you do avoid this one like the plague, if you do not heed my words, fine, I will only say "I told you so".
